night. >> and vice president joe biden was there. did he have any role in this release? >> it doesn't appear that the vice president had a direct role but cnn is told by a white house official that the white house did have some sort of direct connection with the north korean government, which is unusual because of course there are no formal relations between the two countries and that apparently did result in newman being released. the back story behind that, deborah, will be fascinating. >> all right, dan simon for us there. thanks so much. with newman now free, washington is trying to secure the release of another american being held in north korea. kenneth bay, a christian missionary, has been in custody for more than a year. he was sentenced to 15 years for supposedly hostile activities towards the country. his family released a statement saying we have faith in our government to bring kenneth home. >> survivors of the pearl harbor attack gathered in hawaii for a special ceremony honoring those who were killed 72 yearsing a today. japan's 1941 attack on pearl harbor launched the
